WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (SEPTEMBER 20, 2022) — Tonight, the Williamsport Area School District hired Justin Marnon as its new head girls basketball coach.

Marnon, who is a sixth-grade teacher at Lycoming Valley Intermediate School, replaces Terrill Seward who coached for the high school’s last four seasons.

The 2022-2023 season will mark Marnon’s 18th year as a basketball coach. He started his coaching career as an undergraduate assistant while at Lock Haven University before moving on to positions around the area, coaching both girls and boys teams. He’s coached at such schools as St. John Neumann Regional Academy,  East Lycoming, Montoursville and for two years at Williamsport Area Middle School.

He first took on a head coach position in 2015 when he was hired as the head girls varsity coach at South Williamsport Area School District. His seven-year stay there was highlighted by a run to the 2022 PIAA “AA” State Quarterfinals, qualifying for playoffs in five straight seasons, and reaching the district championship game and the state playoffs in three out of five seasons from 2018-2022.

“I am extremely grateful and honored to become the next head coach of the girls basketball team at Williamsport,” Marnon said, “and I look forward to continuing the strong tradition of Millionaire basketball in the Magic Dome.”
